Gerhard Himmer: Intense

Book presentation

Gerhard Himmer Intense

“(…) In an elaborate, invisible, almost alchemaic process, paint appears as an exorbitant, endless fluid that dries downwards and into the canvas over a period of many hours, as if the paint were merely demonstrating its physical reaction to being exposed to air. It is the form of the painting, the format, the canvas, that provide the paint with a place to spread and become visible.” From Christian Egger’s catalogue essay
